Last month, Alexander was charged with a Class A misdemeanor for committing prostitution and a Class 4 felony for keeping a place of prostitution.

About a week after the Glenview Police Department discovered a Craigslist sex-work ad with a Northfield location, Craigslist was forced to take down its "Adult Services" listings.
